The Q&A Archives: lily of the vally

Question: I have somelily of the valley roots and I live in Butte Mt. is it to late to plant them, and will they hold over till next year do I need to dig them up or will they make it through the winter

Answer: Lily of the Valley is normally planted in early spring or in fall. It won't hurt to plant them now, but don't expect them to bloom this year. After the foliage dies down with the first frost, mulch over the area to help protect the roots during the winter months. These plants are hardy from zones 2-8.

Best wishes with your plants!
